Question At what age to buy a Russian dwarf?

I want to get a Russian dwarf hamster, but I don't know at what age it's best to get them. Can someone help me out?
Thank a lot!

Depends on what you like? Pet stores sell them about 10-12 weeks old in my area, if you get your hamster from a breeder you could get them younger pretty sure?

It's a nice thing to rescue a hamster that nobody wants as well, is rewarding to bring some happiness to a hamster in need. Hope this helps

Thanks! I saw a really cute dwarf that was 3 months old, but first I'm going on vacation so I don't know if he or she is still there when I'm back. At least now I know at what age I can get them so thank you!

If you get from a breeder, some will rehome from 5 weeks, some prefer to wait until the pups are 6 weeks old or more before letting them go to new homes. As Cinnamon Bear says it depends on what you like plus where you get them from. Age doesn't always matter. I've known lots of tame baby hamsters and lots of skitty ones, equally I've known lots of tame older hams and lots of skitty ones
